Sweetened with a little stevia and colored (all naturally!) with matcha they give off that festive look without compromising.  Add some fresh fruit on the top and drizzle with some maple syrup and you've got a wonderful breakfast.

Christmas Pancakes

  • Notes

  • Makes 9-10 pancakes.

  • If you desire a thinner consistency add a few tablespoons of water or almond milk.

  • If you don't have any oat flour on hand you can easily make you own with a high powered blender or food processor. When shopping for old fashioned oats make sure to look for "gluten free". While oats are naturally gluten free they are often processed in facilities with wheat that can easily cross contaminate. Place your oatmeal in a blender/food processor and

  • pulse the oats until they are ground into a powder-like consistency (usually 20-30 seconds).
